When we first spoke to Carla and Will about what they were thinking for an engagement session, I (Breanna) could tell that they were super excited about it and wanted it to be perfect.
Thus ensued the quest for the perfect location!
It wasn’t an easy quest either! Sure, there’s a lot of interesting settings near Carla and Will’s home in Los Angeles, but the problem is that once you add in the traffic, those great spots suddenly seem super far apart!
Above all else, the spot that Carla and Will were really hoping to find was the perfect beach!
You know, the one that looks all surreal and dreamlike, with less trash than shells, and more kids than bums… that was the goal.
As I went through the checklist of LA area beaches in my mind, I couldn’t really think of one that fit that description, so we did the next best thing and chose the one that happened to be closest to us in hopes of making it LOOK like the stuff dreams are made of!
But before we headed off to our beach, we decided to make a little stop because we thought the Venice Canals would be the perfect place to start off this perfect session, with it’s many perfectly manicured yards and houses, and it’s perfectly unique looks!
So we did just that before heading over to catch a few shots of them with Will’s bike, since riding is something they love doing together!

After that we headed off to the “imperfect” beach of choice near the Santa Monica Pier.
As it turns out, a little imperfection can go a long way… ALMOST all the way to perfection in fact!
We found we had a lot to work with at the beach we ended up at after all!
Scottie and I couldn’t be happier with how the photos turned out from it, so Carla and Will, I hope you feel the same!
We can’t wait to hang out with you guys to get some perfect photos on your perfect wedding day! See you then!
